Abstract: This report outlines Pakistan’s gender and agricultural context and looks specifically at development of the wheat sector to improve food security. It outlines how an insufficient focus on the barriers women face continues to significantly impact the nation’s agricultural productivity, economic growth and food security. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) signed by the Government of Pakistan (GoP) and other member states include a number of gender and food security indicators, such as eliminating hunger for all. All of them aim “to leave no one behind” and deliver more equitable development outcomes. Achieving these goals will require a new and inclusive approach to agricultural development.
